Ladders CEO Marc Cenedella said, “Spring is in the air, and optimism reigns supreme in the job market. We’ve seen a consistent growth in employer optimism and hiring plans since the fall.  Even as COVID numbers got worse in late 2020, the economy’s ability to make adjustments and satisfy consumer’s demands for lockdown-friendly products and experiences grew significantly. As a result, employers have been scrambling to add staff, and we expect that we’ll very shortly see a labor market as strong as we had in early 2020.”

The Ladders data provides promising news for people planning to change careers this year. Experts are calling an impending wave of job transitions a “Turnover Tsunami.” More than half of working Americans surveyed said they will look for a new job this year. Cenedella said, “With Ladders services like the Resume Review Tool and Apply4Me, we are prepared to help applicants stand out from the rising tide of job seekers.”
